FAVOR has deeply invested in the mission of this unique and educational outreach program of the Harvard Medial School's Office of Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership (DICP). Reflection In Action (RIA) is designed to build healthy communities by giving middle school students leadership roles where they use written, visual and performance arts to relay the message of health in their community. RIA was created in recognition of the 40th anniversary of the March on Washington and in anticipation of, the 50th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education and the 100th anniversary of Harvard Medical School (HMS) at its Longwood Avenue location. Each year FAVOR looks forward to providing a wide array of media services to DICP and to the vast network of schools, community and faith-based organizations, and volunteers that coalesce for this signature event focusing on the health of our urban communities.
